Feet fetish

Does anyone else have a cat that has a thing for feet? my 10 month old kitten Alice, loves to attack my feet.. outta nowhere, she will plop down while im on the comp., and latch on with her nails... i mean, its cute, but it hurts.. and she only does it when shes in a playful mood.. she once hopped down from my lap to attack me

Yes I know this all to well

One thing I noticed though is it happens more when they are kittens and when they get past 1 years old they don't tend to do it much or not at all.

So only a few more months and hopefully she will get tired of it.

My only other tips are play no attention to her when she attacks your feet and say a firm no everytime she does it. And if your somewhere where you can cover your feet do so. Whether that is wearing slippers or rapping them in your sheet whilst in bed. Thats what we did...as it can really hurt and this helped a lot.

I hope she grows out of it and those above tips are useful to you.

My aunts cat still does this and she is going on 3... my cat does this mostly when I am in bed and she's pushing past ten... some cats grow out of it, but I don't think many do as toe biting seems a fun little thing for them. Uhm, I find that barefeet aren't as alluring. Feet kind of hidden like in sheets are especially fun for them and its hard to get them to just stop! Usually if you hide the foot quick or if you don't move at all they may let go... kittens seem to love it though.

jealousy of the computer seems very common amidst the kitties... though usually taken out on the hands more than the feet. lol at least in this household.

Annie likes to do that, and Belle loved to do it, and did it all the time, before she became ill. She still does it if she's in a playful mood, but that's rare, and she has to be careful with herself. She realllllly hurts too! Billy has a foot fettish, but in a different way... he loves to sleep on feet, shoes, and socks. He once stuck his head in my grandma's tennis shoe and got it stuck for a second! It was hilarious!

Well, gotta go!
